Sign Up for Indoor and Outdoor Services

We currently offer indoor and outdoor services that can vary depending on the day and circumstance. Registration is required (and an important part of our ability to ensure minyan.) Service times, locations, and even safety requirements can change on short notice, so please pay close attention to our emails and confirmation messages. Your safety, as well as the safety of our community and staff, is our primary concern in our return to services.

 

(Note: all times, venues, and policies are subject to change on short notice)

 

Weekday Services: Minha/Arbit on Sundays through Thursdays take place outdoors on our green lawn ("Paved Paradise") next to the synagogue at 8 West 70th St.  Morning services are held inside the Sanctuary whenever Torah is read (on Mondays, Thursdays, and Special Days), or other weekday morning when possible. 

Shabbat Services: Friday evenings services take place indoors at 6:45 pm throughout the summer.  At this time, Shabbat morning services are offerend either indoors at 9:30 am and outdoors at 8:45 am.  Shabbat afternoon services take place indoors - times vary week to week. See the weekly prayer schedule or sign up form.

To attend minyan, please complete this registration form. 

 

At this time, masks are required for all indoor services or activities, regardless of vaccination status.  Outdoor services have separate "mask optional" and "mask required" sections.  Vaccinated people may sit in either section.  Unvaccinated people (including children) should only sit in the "mask required" section.

 

Before Signing up, please be aware:

While working diligently to provide a safe environment, we can only ensure a “safer” environment, not a 100% safe one. No congregant is required to attend. If you have been feeling unwell or have any symptoms associated with COVID-19, or have reason to believe that you are at risk of recent exposure to COVID-19, please do not attend.  If you are unsure whether you have engaged in activities or travel that put you at greater risk for spreading COVID, please let us know.  The medical advisors of our COVID-19 working group can assess your situation confidentially and determine whether or not there is any risk in attending synagogue.  We are hopeful that adherence to these rules will enable our prayer services to continue with miminal risk of transmission. 

Reminder: By attending our services or participating in our activities, you and your family are affirming all the procedures, requirements, and undertakings included on our registration forms and are committed to following the CDC and NYS recommended practices in EVERY aspect of your life. Specifically, if you sit in the mask optional section, you represent and warrant affirm that you are fully vaccinated (final dose + 14 days). We
each rely on one another to keep our community healthy and safe.)  

 

 We look forward to praying with you.
